Hedge Funds Rise In Feb.

Mar 10 2014 | 2:46pm ET

Most hedge fund strategies gained ground in February, when the average fund rose 1.9% to erase January's losses.

The Lyxor Hedge Fund Index's return fell far short of the Standard & Poor's 500 Index, which rose more than 4%, but was enough to leave the benchmark up 1.45% on the year. All but one of the strategies tracked by the suite were in positive territory, led by special situations funds, which rose 3.48% last month.

Long-term commodity-trading advisors returned 3.4% in February, long-biased stock funds 2.7%, variable bias stock funds 1.8%, long/short credit funds 1.7%, convertible arbitrage funds 1.5% and global macro funds 0.7%.
